Quote from: johng on July 28, 2011, 08:47:46 AMLastly remember that when you do the port with google your T-mobile account number that you give them is 1 + "your new T-mobile # (ie. the # you are porting)". T-mobile changes your account number from "1 + original T-mobile #" once the port is complete. Lastly right after you initiate the google port expect an immediate email saying there is an error with the port. You will need to go to google voice and it will bring you to a page where they want you to input your T-mobile prepaid pin #, and then it take ~24hrs to complete.johng
Quote from: MrGadget on January 11, 2012, 03:03:25 PMI took advantage of the T-Mobile SIM Activation Starter kit for $2.99 with free shipping. Since I had T-mobile in the past, I should be able to use an old phone for the temporary porting process. (Thanks Jimates for the heads up)Now I am waiting for the SIM to arrive. Once I get the SIM, I'll activate and contact GV to port the number, preferably on a Friday or Saturday to avoid any business calls that could chew up my 10 minute T-Mobile starter.
Quote from: FM9295 on February 03, 2012, 10:33:30 PMAnybody have any idea whether it's possible to do the reverse of all this (say worst case scenario--GV starts charging a bunch for service or OBi disappears from the landscape). Can a GV number be ported back to a mobile (and, potentially to another landline)?
Quote from: LifeHub on February 17, 2012, 10:28:58 AMEncountering a GV problem...I did not have any problem porting landline to the T-Mo prepaid on old Moto Razr. T-Mo with new # can now call out and receive most calls, except receive from GV. It can call out to GV without any problem. T-Mo support has verified that the porting is completed properly and they did not see any problem on their end. This prevents the porting to GV to go through, because the verification call to enter the 2 digit cannot be completed.Has anybody else run into this issue? Or does anybody else have any other ideas?Thanks in advance.
Quote from: Rick on February 17, 2012, 10:39:32 AMWhat if you go into GV and use it to call your landline number. Does the landline work? If it cannot receive calls from GV, one option might be to forward the T-Mobile number to another number. GV calls it to verify, the other phone rings, you enter the code...
